My friend rescued these 2 babies & they are coming to live with me! Any idea what breeds they are? Also, any advice on when/how to introduce them to my existing flock? (My current girls are about 12wks old.) Thank you!

easter egger would be guess for the lighter one, black one hard to tell at this age, could be any of a variety, depending on if it's got feathers coming on legs, but best guess would be silkie or cochin

The light colored chick has slate legs? :hmm
Weird......not Easter Egger if that's the case.

Where did they rescue them from?
Oh sorry, I just clarified with her - the lighter one has yellowish/orange feet...and neither have puffy cheeks.
She said from a breeder who had left them in a shallow incubator with no plans to remove them. :(

I think your lighter bird is a production red of some sort and the black is a silkie.
